Illustrated By: Axel Scheffler
While a little mouse was taking a little stroll through the woods, he comes face to face with a fox, an owl and a snake. Mouse is clever though and is able to see a trick when it is in front of him so he invents the Gruffalo, a big, scary monster. What happens though when he finds out the Gruffalo is real and also wants to eat him?
This is a charming story about a very smart little mouse. There is enough text to keep the kindy/pre-primary reader interested and the story is simple and entertaining enough for younger readers. The illustrations are detailed and fun, presenting the story in a wonderfully visual way. It is easy to see why this book is a perennial favourite.
